  55. 56

    I loved her POP DAISY line when I first saw it, but just visiting her site now, I’m seriously considering Nicey Jane for my living room touch ups (new ottoman cover and throw pillows). In that line, I’m really loving Picnic Bouquet in lagoon and Welcome Road in sky. Oh, and lots more =)

    They are all so great. I am rather fond of the porch swing nicey jane fabrics. Yellows and greens and blues- yum.

  59. 60

    I have been making a small collection of her fabrics and patterns since I saw them at a quilt show. When I asked about the fabric in the kit that I just had to have, the girl said heather bailey pop garden, like I was just supposed to know. Then I looked up and realized, yeah I really should have just known. That’s what I get for taking a break from quilting. Right now the fabric that is making most happy is PEONIES – ivory.

  60. 61

    I’m loving the Pocketbook – tangerine, though I think it’s all beautiful!

  61. 62

    I love them all but I think my favorite is the Paisley Lime from the Pop Garden fabric line!

  64. 65

    Cricket Design. I do have a couple of questions for you if it’s okay.

    Could it be just me or do some of the remarks look like they are left by brain dead
    visitors? :-P And, if you are writing on additional social sites, I would like to follow you.
    Could you make a list of all of your social pages like your
    linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
